Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

My soul, to God return

My soul, to God return

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My soul to God return,
And seek his gracious face;
Well I deserve to sigh and mourn,
Who have abus'd his grace.

2 I lived unconcern'd,
Without a serious thought;
Tho' oft I was reprov'd and warn'd,
Yet I obeyed not.

3 How could it ever be,
That God should e'er forgive;
Astonishing it is to me,
That I am spar'd to live.

4 The blood of Jesus cried,
Thy mercy Lord reveal;
For such I bled, for such I died,
To keep them out of hell.
